3:11 pm
world a white in brazil in particular so it looks like washington has some issues to iron out why the n.s.a. scandal seems to be taking on a broader dimensions running her fellow to r t brazil. honest it is a bit further on r.t. joining me live on the program carlos a phone. so are such a the f.g.b. foundation an influential think tank that consults the brazilian government to see today a welcome to the program here on r.t. your company as we know here on the program is in contact with top brazilian author of he's just how much or how disturbed has it been i should say if not outraged by the revelations of mr snowden well this in fact that issue has been removed from the edge and the secretary of state in the me to see. governmental representative is in brazil is certainly a major step in which the president governments and act in reaction to the n.s.a.
3:12 pm
leaks so far we have been having a lot of discourse of. political. parties and members and it's down. but it was the first time that we have an actual we actually practice removing disease you see the secretary of state's so tell us a little sometimes i'm sort of jumping in i'm going to jump in here just so i could just just so i can understand this we're having we're having trouble with the signal here but just so i can understand they still are telling me that as the u.s. secretary of state john kerry is meeting with the brazilian officials the brazilian government has taken the subject of edward snowden's revelations off the table and they're going to ignore it no right to. they are taken. the recent agreements to buy.
3:13 pm
airplanes from the west they had been removed from the issue on the table from the negotiation and of course the issue of the n.s.a. leaks and snowden is pretty much a major topic to be to be discussed and what i was referring to is this first political but we action which is not to get into any go the situation concert burning does sally off. airplanes u.s. airplanes to do the brazil and government so this was they should that was removed i believe the issue of snowden n.s.a. leaks is pretty much on the table of negotiations since the u.s. government has said that they will sound personnel to brazil to explain what happened and to keep in a conversation about this is situation so now i decide i'm going ultimately the pretty is it because any government now reconsidering this this deal worth four billion dollars to buy american fighter jets certainly they are taking a stand in the issue here john kerry perhaps has
3:14 pm
a lot to explain but in some in some thoughts could it be shooting itself in the foot if it does scrap the deal because it's brazil and not the united states which is very much depending on the states mutual trade well. but the issue here is interesting because we have been for the last three weeks having a lot of information regarding the leaks and this program that is pretty much focused on brazil so the last three months we had news about mound of information there was wonder and in brazil we had a leak concerning to secure or to council on you and i and it nations and we each how brazil would default on a sanction to iran and be intercepted and monitored by a u.s. . program and now we have this economic impact that is.
3:15 pm
the removal of the topic regarding this contract from the visits are the state. of the states we just want to move. because so far we have seen a lot but i would use for. some to say i'm so sorry calamari and i'm going to. get really sick so i'm still here is just dropping out too many times i do apologize i call a cell phone so other research at the f.t.v. foundation that directly consults the brazilian government will speak to you off air and still get your thoughts on the matter thank you very much for spending your time here and not say oh we do apologize to you as well for those technical difficulties we get on dollar just a second now as the secretary of state kerry justifies surveillance in latin america the pirate bay is once again sticking to its copyright in forces and in celebration of its tenth anniversary the flagship pirate web site has released a modified browser that's intended to circumvent censorship and speaking to us
3:16 pm
earlier in the program fabia reinhardt a member of the pirate group of the berlin parliament he told us he believes his online colleagues were actually some of the original pioneers of the digital marketplace. the idea or to reform the way that information and knowledge and culture is distributed among the world. was something that had to be had to be asked that had to be intimate implemented and there were some guys from sweden that said let's try to wake up the dogs that tried to show them how it's going to work and they actually did quite a good job on this fabulous bring in the issue of the n.s.a. spying program that we see in constant anti surveillance protests where you are g.g. think truthfully anything's going to come of the protests while we have to see. german citizens are quite aware of the problem and more than in some other countries we had the. we have the history of severed dictatorships in germany
3:17 pm
that tried to put a complete surveillance of the population so we are quite aware of how this situation can lead and i would say the power party is trying to give people the information of how to predict their data or trying to give people the information of how to encrypt the emails how to communicate privately what can come of this situation and i'd say that already makes quite a difference but people have to be more way of the situation we go to more of the world's top headlines around the corner for you here on r.t. including of a thorny issue of gibraltar pitting spain against britain and that story and russia clarifying how it will treat gays at the sochi olympics more on those after the break. wealthy british.
3:18 pm
markets. find out what's really happening to the global economy with. the no holds barred look at the global financial headlines. is a report. from
3:19 pm
moscow. and let's get straight into it here as dark clouds are gathering over the relationship between the u.k. and spain london is considering unprecedented legal action of a madrid's lengthy checks at the border into the british territory of gibraltar now royal navy ships are also expected to drop by the strait with its all claim to be on a cold shower exercises is prompting one spanish general to call for their access to the rock to be denied. reports. sorted with spain saying that it really wants to protect its interests mainly fishing interests as this whole spat this whole story was sparked by gibraltar is building an artificial reef which spain
3:20 pm
claims is destroying fishing in the area and therefore it had imposed a border checks on those going to one from a gibraltar a british held territory of beer for causing a lot of delays and right now the rhetoric is escalating between britain and spain over the matter britain is threatening e.u. legal action over spain say what it says it's a politically motivated move and london mayor boris johnson actually said that it is quote unquote tantamount to a blockade even used particularly harsh words saying quote i hope one way or another we will shortly prior spanish hands off the throat of our colony end quote and also like and be actions of the spanish government to the franco the time of military dictatorship favorite sport as reported by the spanish press is considering escalating this to the level of the united nations even floating around the idea of spain and argentina presenting a united front over gibraltar and the falkland islands and clearly as britain boris
3:21 pm
johnson in particular is criticizing spain by raising the a franco era you have spain you're highlighting what critics without a doubt will be see as britain's colonial behavior or habits and now all of this is happening as thousands of royal navy personnel have already set sail for the mediterranean in what the ministry of defense has insisted it is a long scheduled a training exercise well long scheduled or not it seems the timing is not lost on the london mayor boris johnson as he said it quote the deploy to the spanish it seems at the spot is continuing to go on. those going to the winter olympics will not be discriminated against as a result of russia's new lore against homosexual propaganda to minus the country's interior ministry dismissing any claims to the contrary as baseless and follows a wave of protests against the new law by western l g b t communities lucy
3:22 pm
catherine off reports. the international reaction as well as domestic here reaction here in russia has really been on what the law does and doesn't do and there's been a lot of misconceptions about it so let's really break it down now the bill criminalizes the public expression of support for so-called nontraditional relationships russian lawmakers say that it doesn't outlaw homosexuality it merely discourages the discussion of it among people younger than eighteen now the law doesn't outlaw gay sex which was actually legalized in russia back in one thousand nine hundred three it also doesn't explicitly ban the participation in gay pride parades the problem however is that the defendant of propaganda is rather vague and it's based on intent so anyone who distributes information for example with the intention of persuading minors that nontraditional sexual relationships are attractive could be accused of breaking this law any individuals or organizations
3:23 pm
who are accused convicted of violating it face fines foreign citizens could potentially face up to fifteen days in prison deportation and denial of every entry into russia now almost activists believe that this law will not be widely enforced there is concern that it effectively gives some local governments carte blanche to say to ban gay pride parades and to discourage people from discussing lesbian gay bisexual issues on the internet so that's the worry the thing to keep in mind however is that russian society is very traditional and conservative and there is in fact a lot of support for this legislation here domestically the independent center a polling center here in russia had actually found that seventy three percent of respondents support any government efforts to curb homosexual propaganda in fact at least the texas haven't really changed over the years it also found that four out of five russians say that they don't have a single lesbian or gay acquaintance so that is why there's been such
3:24 pm
a difference in for example the western and. national reaction versus the reaction right here in russia that's a perfect opportunity to sort of make political statements for whatever issue that comes up this is the the main sort of social hot button issue that's been raised internationally originally the law had sparked a boycott of russian vodka and gave them bars across north america and elsewhere with people dumping a bhakta and front of russian embassy as eventually the calls moved on to boycott the twenty fourteen winter olympics in sochi and one of the prominent british actor stephen fry of course raised intense controversy when he wrote an open letter to the prime minister david cameron as well as the international olympic committee suggesting calling for a boycott suggesting fact that there should be a boycott of the cames even comparing them to the games held in berlin in one nine hundred thirty six the force that was in nazi germany but we should also states that most officials including u.s.
3:25 pm
president barack obama had said that the boycott is unnecessary and that these games should continue to be attended by the athletes now here in russia the russian sports minister said that foreign athletes will be expected to respect the laws of the country but the head of russia is the olympic committee alexander also spoke out on this issue he said that russia will do its best to effectively keep the guests on the participants safe and comfortable that very mixed reaction internationally but russian officials are trying to encourage athletes to feel comfortable and to of course participate in these upcoming sochi winter olympic games are about to syria we go and officially on the outskirts of syria's civil war . right in the middle a report suggests that. slaughtered more than four hundred fifty the billions including women and children if confirmed kodesh leaders in iraq say they are now ready to intervene a human rights activist. says the militants drive to establish an emirate that is
3:26 pm
actually all about access to wealth. these groups seek establishing an islamic states they supposed to engulf the rich areas of kurds and they say they are supported very well by turkey so there are two factors one of them is that these groups want to establish their all islamic state mini islamic state which is our project. and a huge islamic state in. syria and iraq now they see that kurds are facing all the kurds is a challenge to them the other factor is that turkey is pushing this groups against kurds because turkey is not happy that could. are willing go to try to establish their own internal me in that region and the kurdish region northern syria. to iraq to open up the world update now two car bombs have exploded in the country killing at least seven and one of the explosions targeting
3:27 pm
a shia mosque south of baghdad the more than three hundred people were killed in the country last week alone while july's death toll reached a level not seen in years. and a massive gas pipeline explosion has rocked the state of illinois a one mile radius around the sidespin there as well as people including the families there have been evacuated and taken to safety but the flames are expected to be active for hours. joining us on r.t. the kaiser report that's next. the u.s. government project arrow marty has been in place for twenty years this project was designed to break the media monopoly of cuban television by putting u.s. government propaganda up to t.v. screens this injection of american t.v. works with a blimp and a c one thirty military plane working in tandem you know this would actually be
3:28 pm
a major achievement in the history of technology if it actually worked this program which over the years has built up a billion taxpayer dollars simply does not work but continues to exist despite the cuban government completely blocking the transmission the official logic of continuing the program is that it would send a bad message to the cuban government if they stopped brilliance and action but the big question is who gives the u.s. government the right to propagandize cuba is just because they have a different lifestyle doesn't mean it is wrong and the u.s. government does has the right to destroy it and even if cubans on mass actually do hate their system then it is their job to change cuba not the military industrial complex and its cronies in washington but that's just my opinion.
3:29 pm
